I don't know the situation, haven't looked, not investing the time...but 
as long as he's asking for help in a civil tone right now and not being 
a prick about it, we should probably just acknowledge "you did XYZ that 
you probably shouldn't have, but here's some pointers now" at this stage 
in the game, yeah?

Not that you're doing anything horrible at the moment but I can see that 
it may be interpreted as such and start a fight that we don't need on 
the list while he's being nice enough right now. And I'm putting this in 
the public list instead of private because it seems to be something that 
happens with all of us sometimes :-)
